Review:

Good for uni, By Aisha V. Shawcross "boobah" (cambridge) This review is from: The Academic Essay: How to Plan, Draft, Write and Edit (In-Focus - a Studymates Series) (Paperback) This is a great flick through book. You don't have to read it cover to cover, just pick out what you need and when. It explained clearly and was easy to understand. I bought it for uni and it's been used lots of times. True to it's summary, By Helga (Paphos, Cyprus) This review is from: The Academic Essay: How to Plan, Draft, Write and Edit (In-Focus - a Studymates Series) (Paperback) The book is a real little "pocket-rocket" - the summary on the website was "too good to be true" Once I received the book it lived up to the expectation it created. Don't start your studies without this book. True value for money.
